I am told by reliable sources that every gag-strip must break the fourth wall at least once, so we’ll just check this one off the list…

As per the politics, well…it’s hard not to make jokes when these guys make it all so easy. You know what it is though. Prior to switching to U-Verse, whenever American politics would start to bring me down, I simply switch on the CBC (which U-Verse does not carry) and laugh at the Canadian government. This always made me feel better about our own state of affairs. Not that there’s anything wrong with the Canadian government, mind you. Rather the Parliamentary system in general amuses me. It just strikes me as a huge ‘Sword of Damocles’ type of situation, and I am left to wonder how anyone gets anything done. Seems to work for a bunch of the world governments, though, so who am I to knock it?
